Halftime: Florida State 17, Maryland 3

Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown and his ability to run are no longer a surprise.

Neither is this score.

Florida State got back on the winning track last weekend against Duke, and now the Noles returned home for the first time in weeks against a Maryland team coming off an all-out effort in a loss to Clemson. Brown ran all over Clemson last weekend, but the Noles were ready for him. FSU quarterback EJ Manuel has thrown an interception, but he has also completed 14 of 19 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown. He also accounted for a rushing touchdown.

So far, the veteran quarterback has the edge, and so does Florida State's defense.
